This is more of a process suggestion. I've given a few ideas and haven't heard anything. (In other words, I don't know if you're reading the ideas .) I love when David Miller comments to say, "Thanks! We just had a similar show so we can't quite cover that again, but we'll think about it in another year." Having a comment is helpful!
I'm sure it's impossible to cover everyone's ideas (as you indicate on this page), but it might help for:
1. Some criteria for how you select shows. For example, it seems you cover rural communities once every two weeks or so. That might help to know. That way, you're getting suggestions for something you'd like to cover anyway. "Juicy topics" seems to be relative. What is exciting to me may bore someone else and vice versa. I'm sure you're having to weigh that all the time. You may be saying, "We really want to appeal to people 30-ish on topics that are important to Oregon."
2. When an email is sent to you for ideas, some automatic response (no extra time required) that says, "Thanks, we received your email." There you can also give criteria there, so people understand what you're looking for or not looking for. We don't want to waste your time either!
3. I've seen a lot of people, myself included, suggest multiple topics in one post. Is that easier to read than three separate blog posts?
And since David is still reading the blog, thank you!
